Our Landsports Department encompasses both team and individual sports.
Our core sports consist of soccer, lacrosse, softball, basketball, volleyball, and field hockey. Girls come to our overnight camp with a variety of skill levels, and coaches promote confidence and the fun of competition regardless of level. Whether you’re learning the basics or striving for Varsity, we believe that team sports contribute to a sense of belonging while teaching that competition and sportsmanship are equally important.
All campers receive at least one period of assigned instructional team sports every day. Additionally, we offer all of our core sports as electives. Electives are small groups giving campers, seeking further instruction, the opportunity to develop their skills alongside their peers.
In addition to traditional team sports, Camp Pinecliffe also offers instruction in Track and Field activities, culminating in our annual Brown and Blue track meet at the end of the summer.
Pinecliffe’s brand new air conditioned PAC provides an excellent space for gymnastics instruction of all levels and ages (and an excellent space for a rainy evening movie!). Our separate archery field was created to safely teach campers the basic skills of archery while providing sufficient space for even the most advanced archers. Our studio facility provides an excellent environment for yoga instruction.
100 Mile is our individual fitness program that helps campers focus on personal growth and develop healthy life long habits. We have mapped out a 1.0 mile loop through the camp for campers to walk, jog, or run.
We track campers’ progress in one-mile increments and recognize and reward them for progress in twenty-five-mile increments. Girls’ mileage is cumulative over the course of their camp summers, and our most prolific runners strive for and frequently exceed the 200-mile target during their final summer at camp.
